I guess telkom think that as long as they appear to be making progress and improvements, then people will be satisfied :rolleyes:

I mean its good news, but most users are stuck in the 384K level which is not really broadband especially with an upload speed of 128k :sick:

Quite true. After years off stagnation Telkom are struggling to get their arse in gear with the arrival of Neotel and significant improvements from the mobile operators.

It is like a whale trying to grow legs and run on land :p.

Amazing. So the high end bracket gets its second 'free' upgrade, while the rest of us get... nothing. Oh well, that's something at least. Maybe it's the effect of competition. Maybe Telkom knows that the high end users are the ones most likely to switch to Neotel, since they're traditionally first-adopters.

Already there...

Not that much of an improvement, to be honest.

Why do they only concentrate on one ADSL service and not the rest, ie 384 and 512? I am aware of the rumours of an upgrade in September but still... this is now the second time the "fastest" line has been upgraded. First the downspeed and now the upspeed...

i can't recall hearing that anyone other than the "fastest" adsl is getting upgraded.
He didn't ay otherwise. The UPload speed is being upgraded from 384 to 512. The people who download at 384 won't be upgraded to a 512 download speed.

*sigh* yay - more useless fiddling from Telkom that gives the user no real benifit besides screwing your cap over and leaving the gap bigger and bigger from the 384k users!

Pathetic!

It will help me a lot... I was hoping they will do as the rumor said and upgrade the uplink to 1 meg.
